    Sequel wasn't quite as entertaining, still absurdly silly, but it definitely had some truly laugh out loud moments.

    Really? You liked Damon´s cameo? He was fucking awful in that role. Totally not meant for him. Would´ve preferred some lesser known. Not hating on Matt, ´cause I like his work in general, but he was pretty weak here.

    Suddenly, it turns out every movie I'm watching stars Roy Scheider. How the fuck does that even happen? :uhoh:

    Last Embrace (1979) -- A man who may or may not still be a spy working under Christopher Walken is being hunted, either by Walken, a secret Jewish cabal, his own suntanned demons, or all or none of these things. Somewhere along the way he chokes a young Mandy Patinkin. The verdict: unreasonably good.

    When I first saw him climbing out of his sleeping bag, I was kind of disappointed as I didn't expect him to be right for 'the most brilliant among us'. But I think he successfully dialed down his Big Movie Star charisma and did a nice job with the character, showing us a restrained side I don't remember seeing from him . And I often like to see someone usually cast as the good guy being less so.

    But, as mentioned, I'd rather seen someone else as Cooper.




    I like the sound of that.

    Revisited this yesterday - still very enjoyable:

    Roy Scheider: last of the great - and I mean great - working actors.

    All That Jazz is still one of my favourite films.

    Finally got around to seeing Gone Girl. It was pretty good although not as twisted or shocking as I was expecting.

    Also started the Red Riding Trilogy this week. Will finish the last one today. Pretty good so far although after finishing the first one slightly confused I had to turn on subtitles for the second... the movie is in english too haha. Some people just have such a thick accent it's hard to make out exactly what they're saying.

    I would also throw Robert Shaw on that list:


    Jaws
    The Sting
    The Taking of Pelham One Two Three
    The Deep
    Black Sunday
    Etc....

    Took my daughter to John Wick last weekend. I thought it was a great movie. Loved the whole concept. The Continental hotel, paying with secret gold coins, evil Russian mob. Sure, it's a whole bunch of revenge for stealing his car and killing his dog but...it was a really nice car and a cute puppy. Lance Reddick from Fringe, Ian McShane, the hot girl from G.I. Joe? My daughter thought it was the dumbest movie ever made. She said Keanu was 'like' almost as old as me, way too old to be a killer hit man. Old guy. He's got 6 years on me.

    Went to see Interstellar with the Mrs the other night.

    Saw it on a big screen absolutely fantastic visually and for a SF story it combines some interesting social threads. However when i walked out I felt that I have just watched an environmental orientated remake of 2001

    Last night Infamous which I find it a better film than PSH Capote.However that said the 1967 film of In Cold Blood is excellent and has a superb score by Quincy Jones. I went and got my copy of In Cold Blood and Music for Chameleons which has Handcrafted Coffins another true life murder story which i'll find time to read.

    22 Jump Street was also funny.

    Probably not as funny as the first one, but still had laugh out loud moments. Maybe it was because I had just seen 21, but I thought it had less groan inducing "really, that's what the writers decided to go with?" moments.
